The Centre for Accounting Studies (CAS), also known as ‘the Centre’, has been in existence since 1979. It was started as a project under a co-operation agreement between the Government of Lesotho (GoL) and the Government of Ireland (GoI). This agreement came to an end in 2000 when the Centre was handed over to the GoL, under the auspices of the Ministry of Finance (MoF). The Centre was started with the sole focus of being an Accountancy Training Institution. CAS now operates under the Ministry of Education and Training (MoET) since 2016.
